The Lions, lying in wait for a new year ...
The most pressing need remaining for the Detroit Lions remains at quarterback, the position where the team is settled in with a starter but has no experienced depth whatsoever.
That experienced depth left last week, when Shaun Hill chose to sign with the St. Louis Rams instead of heading back to Detroit. This left the Lions with Kellen Moore, who has yet to play in a regular-season game, as the only other quarterback on the roster. So what might the Lions do there?
One option would be to draft a quarterback in the later rounds -- Aaron Murray, Stafford's replacement at Georgia, comes to mind -- and the other would be to still bring in a veteran. Or both. Really, as the Detroit Free Press mentioned Monday, all options are open.
Among those options, according to the Free Press, are Dan Orlovsky, the former Lions quarterback. This might bring back bad memories for Lions fans, as Orlovsky once ran out of the Lions' end zone for a safety -- helping to give Minnesota a two-point win over Detroit in 2008.
And now, a look at Lions news from around the Interwebs:
Stafford is engaged to his girlfriend, Kelly Hall. Jim Caldwell likes the two-point experimentation. Dedication made Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald an elite prospect worthy of consideration by the Lions.
The Lions have no interest in DeSean Jackson, for now, writes Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.
Justin Rogers from MLive looks at the roster needs for the Lions after the first wave of free agency.
And just a reminder -- today is April Fool's Day, so be extra careful what you believe and read on the Internet.
